How to Kill Intestinal Parasites

How To Kill Intestinal Parasites

Parasites are living organisms that live on or in a host organism and utilize the host organism’s nutrients and in so doing, hurt the host organism. Infections with human intestinal parasites represent one of the most common health problems of our days, and they are usually accompanied by symptoms such as anemia, constipation, bloating, digestive disorders and skin abnormalities. Many people completely refuse to take the issue of intestinal parasites seriously, not wanting to believe they suffer from such an uncomfortable and embarrassing health condition.  In this article, I will share with you how to kill intestinal parasites naturally.

However, there is little to be ashamed of, since all humans are exposed to parasitic organisms through various means like air, food, and drinks we consume or come in contact with. Besides the use of powerful anti-parasite drugs that are usually prescribed, there are natural ways to prevent or deal with parasitic infections, particularly since we are talking about long-term interventions. There are specific herbs that Mother Nature has in store for us that create a completely unfriendly environment for intestinal parasites. Below are some herbal oil extracts and how they can be used for getting rid of intestinal parasites.

Oil of oregano oregano_facebook

Nature provides us with many things and remedies are one of them. Oregano has been used for centuries as an antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent for a range of health issues. Oil of oregano is a potent and highly effective natural remedy for treating bacterial infections on the skin or in wounds but is also a perfect means of curing intestinal parasites. The essential oil of oregano is extracted through steam distillation of fresh oregano leaves. Its dominant components are Carvacrol, Thymol, Cymene, Caryophyllene, Pinene, Bisabolene, Linalool, Borneol, Geranyl Acetate, Linalyl Acetate and Terpinene. Chinese doctors have used oregano for centuries to treat cases of vomiting, diarrhea and skin problems. It is a digestive aid which helps to loosen and remove mucus, also helps to help get rid of intestinal parasites. Oregano is known to have powerful antioxidant activity. Opt only for oregano oil made from Origanum vulgare and Thymus capitatus, a variety that grows in Spain. 

How to take:   Dilute the oil (mix a drop with a drop of a carrier oil such as coconut oil), and place it under your tongue. Hold it there for a few minutes, and then rinse it out. Repeat this at least four times a day.

Oil of wormwood wormwood

Wormwood oil has as a component “thujone” which makes it a bit toxic but thujone makes wormwood an ideal deodorant because of its distinct smell and it’s properties that kill those bacteria contributing to body odor. Wormwood is used to eliminate intestinal parasites like worms, especially pinworms and roundworms. Pinworms are the most common worm infection whose eggs spread directly from person to person. Roundworms, or nematodes, are parasites that also infect human intestines.

Pinworms can cause extreme itching in the anal region while roundworms can cause a cough, shortness of breath, abdominal pain, nausea and diarrhea, blood in the stool, weight loss, and presence of the worm in vomit or stool. Parasites are never a good thing, but thankfully they’re treatable with natural remedies like wormwood oil. Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), black walnut and clove are commonly used together to kill off a parasitic infection. It’s said that when these three are taken at the same time, together they’re able to break the parasite’s life cycle.

How to take –  Wormwood is best to take in capsule form when killing parasites.  Some use teas and tinctures, but a standardized capsule is the way to go.  Combine it with black walnut and you have a potent parasitic cleanse. Try this organic variety here. 

Essential oil of cloves  cloves

Clove oil is extracted from the clove bud through distillation and it contains eugenol, caryophyllene, and tannins, which are powerful antimicrobial agents. Clove oil is also rich in calcium, iron, sodium, phosphorous, potassium, and Vitamins A and C. Eugenol is reported to be anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-viral, anti-spasmodic, a broad-spectrum antimicrobial, etc. Eugenol is the volatile oil responsible for the aroma of cloves and it starts to dissipate as soon as they are grounded. These components travel through the bloodstream, killing microscopic parasites and intestinal parasitic larvae and eggs.  Cloves are also effective at killing Staphylococcus and Streptococcus bacteria. Clove oil is very strong and should always be used with a carrier oil and only used for short periods of time, up to 2 weeks when taken internally.

How to take – Use 2-3 drops of clove oil in water with fresh squeezed lemon and drink this 3x daily.

In conclusion, when parasitic infections are suspected it’s time to do a parasitic cleanse. Knowing that there are very effective essential oils that are effective in killing parasites is gratifying.   Taking the highest quality herbs and essential oils is paramount especially when taking essential oils internally.  I highly recommend these essential oils when taking them internally.  To purchase the oils mentioned above, carries Plant Therapy, a reputable, quality brand of essential oils.  Wild Harvest is a great brand to purchase wormwood capsules.

    1. Hi Paula! Thanks for reading! I always suggest people run any kind of alternative therapy with their own doctor, especially if they are suffering from a disease like heart disease. Most vitamins and herbs are extremely safe to use, but there are some contraindications for medicines and with pregnant women, they should always go over everything they put on their skin and in their mouth with their doctor.
